Styx - Cornerstone
Cornerstone is the 9th studio album from the band Styx and is the 3rd of 4 consecutive multi-playinun selling albums from 1977 to 1981 (The Grand Illusion, Pieces of Eight, Paradise Theater). This made them the first band EVER to achieve that sales feat. The album art was done by Mike Haggerty. He is known for doing famous album covers for David Bowie, The Police, the B52s and out of nowhere GLASSJAW'S WORSHIP AND TRIBUTE. WHAT A CAREER! Another fun fact I found is that despite being known for epic love ballads, the band was actually accused once of Satanic backmasking by the Parents Music Resource Center. They claimed that their anti-cocaine song, Snowblind, contained the backmasking recording "oh satan, move in our voices." Of course these were false claims but to get back at the PMRC, the band later purposely put backmasking in their song, "Heavy Metal Poisoning." They put "annuit coeptis novus ordo seclorum," which is the inscription of the Great Seal of the United States.
